You are Wrong

Chance asks "Is there a good book on audio mixing for cinema?"

The answer is "no." And this has been a source of frustration to me for some time now.

Although it might be that writing about mixing is like dancing about architecture. Or some such thing.

Getting back to my problems of yesterday, this post makes me think that the malarky levels are very high, especially this part:

Proper dialnorm measurement requires choosing a suitable portion of dialog within the program. It leaves the setting for music programs up to the discretion of the operator."
In the meantime I'm in z-buffer and alpha channel hell. I don't know what to do.

Oh, and remember that teaser? Well it turns out that it's due tonight and the editor was having trouble with his edit system dealing with the HD files so he's asked for me to send him a copy of my cut of the teaser. How much you wanna bet the final teaser is just the one I already cut? Take it up with your favorite bookie...
